The Roller Coaster of Success


For everyone on the path to success, sometimes the path feels more like a roller coaster. One second you’re on top of the world; everything is going perfectly and you’re making incredible moves. Fast forward a little, and you’ve hit rock bottom. Everything has fallen apart and you have no idea what to do.

We here at Elevated know this all too well. When we initially launched last July, things were going great. We made a few sales, and had a few people genuinely interested in our apparel. But then, just as the wheels had started moving, suddenly everything stopped. The orders stopped coming in, engagement plummeted, and it seemed as if Elevated was dead in the water.

At times, we can all feel stuck at the bottom. You hit a long, boring lull in life and maybe there’s nothing you can do about it. Perhaps you’re waiting on the Green Light for a new business venture, or you’ve been relentlessly applying to schools but have heard nothing back. These times of hitting the bottom are terrible, and at times it seems you’re stuck there forever.

Then suddenly, things change. You get a phone call asking if you’d be interested in joining a team. You stumble across a career fair and land a corporate job. You get a letter in the mail asking if your art piece could be featured in a gallery. It’s amazing how life can change in the blink of an eye, and once again you’re back on top.

We wish we could tell you that you could stay on top forever, however that’s not the case. Everyone goes through rough patches, but these dull times teach us to pick ourselves up and continue on the road to success. Just think, if we had given up after our initial launch, you wouldn’t be reading this blog right now, getting inspired to go out and change the world.

If you’re in a low spot right now, we’re here for you. Learn from it, pick yourself up, and before you know it you’ll be back at the top where you belong.
